In Wisconsin, a couple inches of rain is a normal storm. Down here in Arizona…
Being the end of the Monsoon season here, we have received our fair share of storms; most of which end up bringing nothing more than lightning and dust. This one was different though. A total of 4-5 inches submerged the valley in water, a place where sewage drains are few and far between. Many roads cross gulches that are bone dry 364 days of the year, but today they were dangerous rapids. News coverage has been non-stop, showing the I-10 freeway that is under 4 feet of water and looks very similar to Tempe Town Lake. It’s been an interesting experience to say the least.
Glad I didn’t have to try and get to work this morning!
